Friday I did 440x5 pretty easily off the floor then went to do some rack pulls(more for variety than anything) and found I could barely do 455 from below the knees. Once I got it moving I came up fast and actually went up on my toes but when I started it it felt like it was glued to the rack.
I tried 495 but could not budget.
I think it’s unusual to pull more off the floor but one thing I thought of is maybe due to my form- for my height my arms are exceptionally long so I kind of just use a close stance and essentially squat the weight up. In the rack I couldn’t get any leg drive.
So… I guess my question is, does this indicate a weakness in the upper back musclulature or just poor form on rack pulls.
Sorry, no video =[, would be easier to convey that way.
